Annual Fulbright Webinar, Thursday March 7, 2024 at 2pm

(HYBRID: Fisk 201 or Zoom)

Register ahead to attend our annual webinar with Fulbright US Student Program alumni, national program staff, and our Fulbright advisor here at Wesleyan. It’s a great way to learn about Study/Research Grants and English Teaching Assistantships through the Fulbright US Student Program. Juniors and seniors who are US citizens or nationals are eligible to apply this year. (The application portal will open in April.)

We’ll hear from the national program staff and alumni ambassadors first, and then go into a breakout room to break down how the application process works at Wesleyan—all told probably just over an hour. If you’re unsure whether you can join live, register anyway and we can send you the recording after the fact.

Sponsored by the Office of Fellowships at the Fries Center for Global Studies.
